Yessssss I love scandi stuff. I'll put the series link on

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 19-Nov-20 14:51:39

They seem to have better stories

Is it subtitled? I like to knit in front of the tv and subtitles are not my friend.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 19-Nov-20 17:11:02

Most of the foreign ones are

But I like subtitles. Little dead plus people mumble

Grew up with them as dad is deaf so I can read and watch

Just been watching series 4 of The Bridge (the Scandi-noir, NOT the Channel 4 reality show!), repeated on BBC 2 which has to be one of the best! Looking forward to the Valhalla Murders this weekend.

Another BBC 4, Saturday night, 9pm fan here too.

There are some cracking tales. Only one I'm not a fan of is Montalbano, but agree, elliesdad, The Bridge is superb.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 20-Nov-20 10:51:38

I need to start the bridge @elliesdad2006. Meant to be good

@Wingedharpy they are fab. Always a good ending

This sounds just the sort of thing that I'd enjoy.

Just had a quick look on Imdb.

Just love Icelandic surnames!

I think I might watch this tomorrow and watch I’m a celeb as subtitles require more concentration and I start flagging about 10grin. It looks good though

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 21-Nov-20 18:03:32

I was thinking the same @WhentheDealGoesDown

I watched 7 last week of dna but left 8 the ending till Sunday as tired and. Didn’t want to not understand it

I’ve worked the past 5 nights so will probably end up in bed 930/10 abs record both 😂😂😂

Adding to watch list - sounds like my sort of thing.

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 21-Nov-20 21:15:06

Recorded celeb so can zap adverts 😂

Watching, and more than happy to give this a go, but we've already had the separated husband and demanding-mother-who-doesn't-realise-her-daughter's-in-the-police to tick off the bingo card.

That wasn't getting too close at all!

ageingdisgracefully Sat 21-Nov-20 22:17:07

Seems a bit clichéd. The interiors are very IKEA.

HA I just said that to DH!

Wingedharpy Sun 22-Nov-20 01:48:58

I'll stick with it for now but have to say, it didn't have me hooked.
I found myself dozing off at one point which is not a good sign.
Nothing whatsoever to do with the gin I'd had😉

Maireas Sun 22-Nov-20 07:14:19

How blood thirsty is it? I love a good detective series but am a bit squeamish.

I watched, but is it going to be a bit cliched, with a plot line which has been rather overdone? I can't say more without a spoiler.

Peregrina Sun 22-Nov-20 09:55:35

But I read a Financial Times review, which told us not to forget the 30 year old skeleton, that someone was working on.

notacooldad Sun 22-Nov-20 11:15:48

It appears to be some paedophile/ murder ring.
The Skelton was if a child who was 12 years old 30 years ago.
That seems the obvious story line but I hope I'm wrong because I want something a bit different.

Peregrina Sun 22-Nov-20 11:27:25

That's what I thought too, and that the murderer is someone getting revenge... but then there is the story with the Oslo detective.
